    and colleagues we are tracking 50 year shifts in plant community composition structure and diversity We are particularly interested in patterns of community impoverishment and homogenization and how the invasion of the region by exotic species is affecting native plant diversity and abundance On a fine scale we study how demography and genetics influence the dynamics and persistence of rare species like Pedicularis furbishiae Aconitum novaboracense Cirsium pitcherii and Polygonella basiramea We are interested in how reproductive characters influence the abilities of rare plants to persist via repeated recolonization metapopulation dynamics We also use isozyme and DNA markers to assess population genetic structure in relation to population size and environmental conditions Such information leads in turn to a better understanding of how the size and arrangement of habitat patches and patterns of disturbance affect long term persistence Small and inbred populations face multiple hazards including the accumulation of deleterious mutations increasing the genetic load and the increased expression of these mutations upon inbreeding inbreeding depression While inbred populations may eliminate some of their load via selection against deleterious recessive alleles such purging may be inefficient in small populations with a history of inbreeding In lab experiments with the fast cycling annual Brassica rapa we are attempting to track how the genetic load shifts in response to population size and levels of inbreeding Evaluating how much purging occurs in small inbred populations compliments existing theory and enhances our understanding of the short term dynamics of mating system evolution and the genetic hazards faced by small populations We also study how high densities of white tailed deer are affecting populations of sensitive herbaceous and woody species Much of this work centers on Tsuga canadensis an old growth dominant in the region Thuja occidentalis an important community type and Trillium grandiflorum a charismatic
